Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Yeah, that's too right. But people don't demand explanations for ancient flaws, as 'that's the way it's always been', but pick the most stupid faults with new things. Like the head of the reigning monarch appearing on banknotes, which would have to end were we to join the euro. Completely in ignorance of the fact that her face doesn't appear on all sterling notes, and used to appear on none.
